To the Jesus Sharer

To the person who shared Jesus with me,

I was a tough person to crack.

Dead set against allowing any of that nonsense into my life.

On the outside I may have seamed tough and set in my ways.

But inside I was crying out.

I was drowning in sorrow.

I needed help.

You could have looked at my tough exterior and made the decision that I didn’t want to hear what you had to share.

You could have made the decision that I did not want to know Jesus.

You could have written me off as a lost cause.

But you didn’t write me off.

instead you were kind.

You told me all about Him anyway.

Though at times I may have acted like I didn’t want to hear it, I really did.

I was listening because every word gave me hope.

I needed hope.

Because of your willingness to trust God and let him use you my life is forever changed.

Not only is my life changed so are the lives of others.

You don’t know them and they don’t know you.

But each one of those people is a direct result of your sharing.

Lives that used to be sad are full of joy now.

People are saved.

Their place in Heaven is secured.

In turn they are also passing Him on now too.

Sharing the new Joy they have found In Jesus.

It’s what we all have to do

There is always hope.

So keep passing Him on.

Keep sharing Jesus even though you think I am not listening.

Thank you for not passing me by

Thank you for not making the decision for me that I did not want to know Jesus.

Thank you for letting Jesus live through you.

Matthew 28:18-20   Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    So beautiful, thank you T, you touched my heart with this message because I too resisted God’s Love but to be honest I didn’t really know His Love even as a Christian but asking earnestly and recieving His wisdom opened my eyes and for the first time I felt really secure and knew I was greatly Loved and no matter the circumstances, the trouble and even suffering, I don’t doubt His Love or feel insecure any more.

      Hi Anne,
      I don’t doubt it anymore either and I am just so thankful that I know God now. Before I knew Him I was always trying to find something but I was never sure what I was searching for. Now I just want to know God more and more every day 🙂 You and I seem to have a lot in common, God bless you Anne so glad you know his love 🙂

    There are many people in this world now than before that are that way myself included,
    The verse you included was one that I was taught at a bible study when I was in my early 30s’ and I have passed that verse to many others. It’s funny because I was just trying to remember where that was in the bible the other day, The verse was there but the Book,Chapter and verse was a blank. Thank your for the reminder. But as well a reminder a tough shell to crack is me, slowly I am getting there and thanks for the push
